I've am issue with my Raspberry Pi 2 (same with Raspberry Pi 3).

I try to use RetroPie with the composite of my Raspberry Pi 2 (also tested with RPi 3), but the single what can I see is somthing like the folloring (flickers):

The screen is working fine with the composite out of my old DVD-Player.

Can anyone help my?

Are you supplying the same voltage when using your dvd player vs when using the Pi's? Are you use your composite video connections are same when using the dvd and the Pi's?

If you're using the same SD card for both Pi's, try using a different one with a fresh retropie install.

Also, pictures of your connections and soldering will be helpful as well.
